When it comes to dressing for winter, I’m a huge fan of layering basics. Most days my uniform consists of a good pair of leggings, a cozy cotton t-shirt and an oversized sweater of some sort. Sure, alone these pieces can seem a bit blah, especially come mid-winter when the excitement for bundling up has totally worn off, but really those winter basics are a blank canvas–all it takes is a few eye-catching accessories to pull together a cute outfit worthy of cold temperatures.
Here are 3 effortless ways I like to dress up winter basics:
1. Wrap up in a bold blanket scarf. My realization this season: plaid or neutral-toned patterns can be particularly great for tying together both black and brown elements into the same outfit.
2. Have go-to handbag & sunglasses on hand. I tend to gravitate toward classic designs over trendy–particularly when pairing with a bold blanket scarf. Lately I can’t leave home without my favorite aviators and this black leather satchel.
3. Pull on some cute & comfortable boots. I’m particularly fond of riding boots because they can be dressed up or down, depending on what you pair them with. I snagged this cute pair at DSW recently. Check them out if you’re on the hunt for new boots–they have so many cute styles, these great black suede booties to boot!
